When Sisson's became Baltimore's first brewpub in the late 1980s, beer lovers embraced the Federal Hill bar's high-quality, finely hopped ales. Within months, more than 90 percent of the beer it sold was brewed there. But two decades later, with a new owner and a new name, Ryleigh's Brew Pub, demand for the home brew had all but dried up, and the metal vats unceremoniously made way for an oyster bar. Once urban mainstays, bars that brew their own beer in-house are becoming increasingly rare in cities along the East Coast.

With a thrust of Longclaw, Jon Snow ran his giant sword through the head of a mutineer at Craster's Keep Sunday - giving a gory victory to the Night's Watch and unwittingly saving his little brother Bran Stark and the Reeds. But Jon (Kit Harrington) did more than just save his kid brother and burn down a house of horrors. His closing scene saved what was otherwise the weakest episode of the fourth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones. " Most of “First of His Name” meandered through various plotlines with little action or storyline advancement.

Little League baseball Berlin All-Stars drop first game in Bristol, now 2-1 The Berlin All-Stars came into their third game Monday morning at the Little League World Series Mid-Atlantic Region tournament with a 2-0 record and in the apparent driver's seat. Meanwhile, Capitol City from Washington came in 0-2, needing to win to avoid elimination from pool play. And though a late comeback had Berlin within one run of victory, the team suffered its first loss of the tournament, 11-10.

Let the double-crossing families of Westeros waste their waking hours plotting to kill each other's wannabe kings. The true heir to the Targaryen Empire is busy building an army. The episode "Breaker of Chains" reminded us that, despite the compelling stories of Starks and Lannisters, Daenerys Targaryen is the real star of this series. (More so than in the books, Dany's character stands out on TV - in sunny landscapes as opposed to the dark surroundings of the west.) Watching Sunday's episode, I was also struck once again by how much fine, understated, nuanced acting is going on in this show about dragons, zombies and watches -- particularly by Lena Headey (Cersei)

The penultimate episode of “Game of Throne's” third season was about despair, the kind of soul-crushing despair that only a horror like the Red Wedding could bring about.   But the season finale was about hope -- hope in the form of Daenerys Targaryen, the last of her name, who has emerged as the show's conqueror and abolitionist. As a bloody civil war tears Westeros apart, Daenerys has freed the slaves of multiple cities in Essos, that continent to the east full of warlocks, Dothraki nomads and mysterious sellswords.

Pity the Capitol City Brewing Company.The opening of Harborplace's new brew pub at the beginning of July went virtually unnoticed because the Hard Rock Cafe Baltimore, also brand-new and also in the Inner Harbor, got all the press.There are similarities between the two beyond the coincidence of their openings: Both are chains. (Capitol City has four other locations in the Washington area.) Both have major bars, and both specialize in casual food and bar fare.But the audiences are different.

Mark S. "Abe" Abernathy, a master carpenter and award-winning brewer, was found dead Wednesday in the water alongside his sailboat, the Sandpiper, which he lived on and kept berthed at Center Dock Marina in Fells Point. He was 32. Until recently joining Old Dominion Brewery in Leesburg, Va., Mr. Abernathy had been head brewer at Capitol City Brewing Co. restaurant at Harborplace for three years. His interest in brewing began in the mid-1990s, when he set up a microbrewery in the basement of his Hampden home.
